The hummocky terrain covering much of the left portion of the photograph is the Fra Mauro Formation, material interpreted to be ejecta from the Imbrium Basin. The low illumination angle emphasizes the undulating surface texture of the Fra Mauro Formation. The sharp-rimmed crater on the northern rim of Fra Mauro Crater is Fra Mauro D.
